Atlantic Forestry Review Jan 2023 Article
The Atlantic Outdoor Sports and RV Show is proud to announce its FIRST EVER forestry focus at the upcoming March 10-12, 2023 edition at Halifax Exhibition Centre. Over the show’s 38 years, forestry has always been a part of this event – the largest gathering of outdoor enthusiasts in Atlantic Canada – but never has it been in the spotlight like this year. In fact, Day 1 of the show will be themed FORESTRY FRIDAY, with a request that all attendees wear their best plaid!
“We have always wanted to emphasise forestry as part of the outdoors, and promote an industry that’s a huge part of our life here in Atlantic Canada – we just weren’t sure how,” says Kori Levy, Event and Account Manager for show promoter Darwin Event Group. “Now, with help from some new friends, we’re able to make this happen in a big way for 2023!”
The show will feature educational sessions, presentations on trending forestry topics, and the chance for people to touch, learn, and discover through hands-on activities. Forestry equipment will be on display and for sale, including items appealing to small private landowners as well as large forestry businesses. Many exhibitors will also be discussing career pathways and opportunities in the forestry sector. The Scott’s Timber Show, a main arena entertainment tradition, will wow the crowds again this year, and negotiations with a forestry celebrity are in the works. Devon Wilkins, co-owner of Rumcache Forest Solutions Inc., is excited to be an exhibitor, and optimistic about engaging with attendees.
“Forestry has historically been a ‘quiet,’ misunderstood industry, due to the nature of the work and people involved in it,” he says. “Nova Scotia has an incredible variety of mills, contractors, woodlot co-ops, associations, and consultants available to help all sizes and types of woodlot owners with different goals. We hope this show will provide a showcase for these groups to highlight their skills and knowledge – to create a stronger, healthier connection with members of the public. This show could become a yearly platform that our sector can utilize and build from for years to come, adding another interesting dynamic to an already amazing event.”
Other exhibitors include, WestFor Management, Elmsdale Lumber, Eisnor’s Forestry, the Nova Scotia Forest Technicians Association, Harry Freeman and Son Limited, the Maritime College of Forest Technology, The Tractor Dome, and more.
